About me

Thanks for stopping by, congrats on taking the first step in this process and by dusting yourself off and becoming the best version of yourself. This process isn't about changing who you are, in fact who you are really is awesome. We just want to rid you of anything that isn't you, such as heavy suits of armor that perhaps you do not need to carry anymore. I have been a social worker for 11 years and I have worked with all ages, all socioeconomic backgrounds, and with various nationalities and ethic backgrounds and getting to hear each individual's story is my passion. I am LGBTQIA friendly, spiritually minded, a trained reiki practitioner, and a firm believer that the universe has your back, and is always guiding us. I can't wait to hear your story , and to be alongside you on this metamorphosis.

Dana made me feel like I was understood, and assured me that it was okay to open up during them. Whatever goal you might have with starting therapy, she is always there to support and willing to help you plan.

Dana has served as my therapist for a few months now. I originally intended to begin therapy due to stress from work and school. Dana was always willing to listen to what I was struggling with and providing professional feedback. During my time with Dana, I also went through a rough breakup with my partner at the time. I was completely unprepared to handle the situation, and Dana was my saving grace in helping me work through the breakup. She was quick to respond to messages I would send using the chat feature on BetterHelp. Dana is extremely personable and came ready to support my needs every time I logged on for a session. The only reason I'm leaving is because of finances, but I wish I could continue services with her! Anyone who has the opportunity to work with Dana is in great care.

Dana is amazing!!! She is the best listener. My life has improved significantly since our first session. I always leave our meetings feeling heard, understood, and with new perspectives on situations we talk about. She is truly the best.

In the past few weeks I’ve worked with Dana, I’ve made more progress and have had more breakthroughs than in all my years of therapy combined.

Dana is attentive, compassionate, professional, and so caring. She has helped me process so much and working with her has changed my life for the better. I will stay with her for however long I can and highly recommend her to anyone in need of an incredible therapist.

Dana is great. We connected quickly. I felt really comfortable talking to her and she had great suggestions. She also asked the right questions when topics required probing a little more. I felt seen and heard.

Dana is great! I went into my session feeling very anxious and Dana helped me to talk through things. She also walked me through a few breathing exercises that were helpful. I left my session feeling much calmer and feeling better about things overall.

I have really enjoyed my sessions with Dana so far. I haven’t been in the best place and having the routine now of talking with her has made me feel much better and makes me look forward to my meetings. She is a good listener and I don’t feel judged or scared to tell her how I’m really feeling. I appreciate her time!!
